The decodable Black and White Storybooks are specially designed for teachers to send home to help children practise reading the stories they have been learning in school.
Each book contains the same story as its corresponding colour Storybook, but includes clear guidance for parents at every step. This support includes parent-friendly notes for the activities at the start of the books to help children to practise the sounds and words they will encounter in the story. There are also notes for the questions to talk about at the end of the story to help parents develop their child's comprehension.
Video support on www.oxfordowl.co.uk/for-home and www.ruthmiskin.com can be used alongside the books to help parents feel confident pronouncing pure sounds.
The books are part of the Read Write Inc. Phonics programme, developed by Ruth Miskin. The programme is designed to create fluent readers, confident speakers and willing writers. It includes Handbooks, Sounds Cards, Word Cards, Storybooks, Non-fiction, Writing books and an Online resource. Read Write Inc. is fully supported by comprehensive professional development from Ruth Miskin Training.

Read Write Inc. Phonics has had a massive impact on our phonic results, raising them from 56% to 96%. All of our staff enjoy using the programme, including our teaching assistants, who feel it has empowered them. We are all amazed and delighted at the difference it has made to teaching and learning in our school. * Joan Cullen, Head Teacher, Sacred Heart Catholic Primary School, Luton *
Read Write Inc. Phonics is effective because of the speed in which the children are able to make progress. There is a very clear structure and children are empowered to succeed because of the systematic and rigorous approach. * Katherine Roberts, Reading Manager, Elmhurst Primary School, Newham *
As a Head Teacher, its wonderful to have such confidence in a programme that you know no child will leave Key Stage 1 as a poor reader. How amazing is that! * Jacqueline Savage, Principal, Outwood Primary Academy Lofthouse Gate, Wakefield *
